Shifting cultivation dynamics within an ecosystem service hotspot of pronounced global interest – a first step towards negotiating trade-offs in North-East Madagascar [article]

Julie Gwendolin Zähringer, Cornelia Hett, Bruno Ramamonjisoa, Sandra Eckert, Peter Messerli
2014 unpublished
There are extremely tight linkages between social and ecological components of the system: rural households derive much of their wellbeing from the woodlands and associated agricultural systems, and ecosystem  ...  The most noticeable change has been a rise in land under cultivation from ca. 42% in 1983 to 63% in 2013, an increase in almost 1.3 million hectares.  ...  In this study, we analyzed a 30-year NDVI time series from AVHRR data (NDVI3g) in order to test the hypothesis that north-east Brazil suffers from land degradation related to droughts and decreasing rainfall  ...

From deforestation to forest recovery: perspectives for the Amazon under the rule of the Brazilian Forest Code [article]

Leticia De Barros Viana Hissa, Humboldt-Universität Zu Berlin
2021
In this thesis I focused on the Brazilian Forest Code (BFC), the flagship environmental legislation governing land use in private lands of Brazil.  ...  Therefore, cutting back land use change emissions is a major pillar of Brazil's commitment to the Paris Agreement, which includes the plan to achieve zero net deforestation in the Amazon and restore 12Mha  ...  The lack of a longer time series hampers the establishment of a baseline from which to analyse forest regrowth dynamics and draw associations with land use policies.  ...
